I have had fun colouring in this new Wee Hazel Witch from Sylvia Zett. She had to be in purple and black of course, what young self respecting witch would be dressed in anything else?!
OK, so you want to know the Copic shades I used .. .. well, in addition to my usual skin tones I've used the cool greys from 0 to 7, the violet shades V000, 01, 06 and 09 as well as the blue violets BV20, 23, 25 and 29. For the background I've used B0000, B000 and B00. I've added a touch of sparkle to her hat and shoe buckles with a Stardust pen and used my glaze pen over the watch face and her moon stone pendant.
And here's the card. The bats, text and the cobweb corners are by PB and the black flowers are punched with Nellies Choice punch and emboss sets with little AB star gems in the centres. The spotty paper is from my stash and I've matted with lilac and dark grey card, added a black organza bow and a sprinkle of stars.
The next Digital Tuesday challenge is for people cards, perfect for Hazel! Cupcake Crafts have gone over to the dark side with a black and purple colour challenge this week and the iCopic blog want to see your unloved colours - well I don't like to colour in dark greys very often and rarely use the darker purples so that's been a bit of a challenge for me.
I'm still not getting around to many blogs just at the moment, what with the slow internet connection down in this part of Cornwall and getting things sorted out here. The good news is the architect submitted the plans for the extension yesterday and fingers crossed all will go through in about 6 weeks. The porch has been delayed due to the manufacture of the curved panes of glass, but hopefully that will be sorted this week and next week it will go in. More delays on the solar panels due to Western Power objections, but as we are within the Governments guidelines I don't think they can object .. .. but they are being awkward and causing delays. We also have to have the electricity supply moved from one side of a wall to the other - more delays and the expense is astronomical (the price of a new kitchen!). So I'm not getting too much time to craft either, but hey ho - it'll be worth it in the end!
